♥ The city of York

Kirsty's tip

Having lived on the Yorkshire coast my whole life I feel very lucky to be so spoiled for choice with great places to eat and excellent beaches right on my doorstep. The quirky city of York (which is great for shopping!) is one of my favourite places to explore and I love visiting the Castle Museum and the little shops on The Shambles but I haven’t quite managed the 275 steps to the top of York Minster yet!

♥ North York Moors

Louise's tip

My favourite thing to do in Yorkshire is to spend a Sunday afternoon with my husband and our four-year-old daughter taking in the fresh air of the North York Moors. We love to cross the stepping stones over the river in the pretty village of Lealholm, followed by a good roast dinner, with Yorkshire puddings of course, in the local pub The Board Inn. We’ll then drive on to The Moors National Park Visitor Centre in Danby which has a fantastic play area and mud kitchen for children plus an indoor exhibition, art gallery, kids climbing wall and tea room. There is so much to see and do in Yorkshire you’ll be spoilt for choice. Here are a few of my other favourite things to do…Enjoy a well-deserved ice cream after climbing the famous 199 steps which lead up to the magnificent Whitby Abbey. Paddle in the sea at Sandsend and Runswick Bay on the Yorkshire Coast and enjoy some traditional fish and chips on the seafront in Scarborough. Head to the natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales for a long walk in the countryside and see Yorkshire cheese being made at the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes.
